CNN Draws Sean Spicer Like One Of Your French Girls
Huffington Post - 8 months
CNN brought in a courtroom sketch artist to illustrate Sean Spicer’s camera-free briefing — the press secretary will let the illustrator’s craftsmanship speak for itself. Joe Biden called activist investor Bill Ackman an “asshole,” so you can pretty much expect Carl Icahn to bankroll his 2020 presidential campaign. And Donald Trump can’t stop incriminating himself. We swear, if you gave the guy a Cessna with a skywriting smoke dispenser attached to it, vacationers on the Eastern Shore would soon know that he is trying to obstruct a federal investigation. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Friday, June 23rd, 2017: CNN sent Bill Hennessy, the network's regular Supreme Court sketch artist, to the White House briefing today. https://t.co/c0yvofNinq pic.twitter.com/issRqyl9i8 — Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) June 23, 2017 DEAN HELLER HAS NOTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT THE HEALTH CARE BILL - He sounded like he’s been reading HuffPost’s health care coverage, tbh.

Jill Biden Shares Her Advice For Empowering Girls And Raising Strong Daughters
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Dr. Jill Biden knows a few things about raising strong children. The former second lady is mom to Ashley Biden and stepmom to Hunter and the late Beau Biden. At a launch party for Ashley’s new philanthropic clothing line, Livelihood, her mom spoke about empowering young women. “I think the most important thing as a mom, and also a teacher, is to give kids confidence,” she told PopSugar. “And I tried that with Ashley because confidence is very important — especially for women. Girls need to be strong because they have to keep it together and handle a lot more responsibilities right now.” Dr. Biden, who is an author and college professor, offered some tangible advice to parents. “I think it’s about positive reinforcement every single day, and I suggest that to moms, as a mom,” she said, crediting her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, for his commitment to this practice.  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidibl...

'We owe you so much,' Kosovo to tell Biden as street named after late son
Yahoo News - over 1 year
By Fatos Bytyci SOJEVE, Kosovo (Reuters) - On a busy road in Kosovo, brand new signs have been put up ahead of a visit by U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, showing the 35-km route in the southeast of the small Balkan nation that has been renamed after his late son Beau. Naming streets after U.S. officials is becoming something of a tradition in Kosovo, whose population is mainly ethnic Albanian and which considers the United States its savior since 1999 NATO air strikes halted killings by Serbian troops. Beau Biden worked in Kosovo after the 1998-99 war ended, helping train local prosecutors and judges for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Biden takes 'Moonshot' cancer campaign to Vatican

US Vice President Joe Biden won Pope Francis's backing Friday for advances in cancer treatment to be made available to everyone, as he brought his "Moonshot" campaign to the Vatican. Biden, whose 46-year old son Beau Biden died from brain cancer last year, made an emotional speech at a stem cell summit thanking Francis for counselling his family during the pontiff's visit to the United States. Francis told the summit, which is being hosted by the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture and US-based Stem for Life Foundation, it was unacceptable that patients suffering rarer types of cancer or childhood diseases were sidelined "because investing in them is not expected to produce substantial economic returns".

Joe Biden Regrets His Decision Not To Run For President
Huffington Post - about 2 years
WASHINGTON (AP) — You can take Joe Biden out of the presidential campaign, but you can't take the campaign out of Joe Biden. Three months after bowing out of the 2016 competition, the vice president has a few second thoughts about his decision. "I regret it every day," Biden said Wednesday. Still, he said he made the right call for his family and for himself. And he pledged to stay "deeply involved" in the race to replace President Barack Obama. "We've got two good candidates," Biden said, praising Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for engaging in a "robust debate" devoid of personal attacks. He glossed over the third candidate running for the Democratic nomination, Martin O'Malley, whose campaign has struggled to gain traction. The vice president's musings about the campaign he almost waged came in an interview with WVIT, one of five interviews Biden conducted to promote Obama's executive actions on gun control. He told the Connec...

My 2015 'McLaughlin Awards' [Part 2]
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Welcome back to our annual year-end awards column! [Part 1 of this column ran last week, just in case you missed it.] Before we begin with this week's awards, we have a few odds and ends to get out of the way first. Last week's list had the "Best Photo Op" category, and we missed a few that deserve mentioning. There was the image of South Carolina's official flag being flown at half-staff after the Charleston shooting, with the Confederate flag in the foreground, flying at the top of its pole. In a more positive light was the photo of the White House lit up in the colors of the rainbow flag, after the Supreme Court decision was announced which guaranteed marriage equality. That was a pretty good photo op, and deserves mention. On purely amusing grounds, Ted Cruz pretending to audition for The Simpsons deserves some sort of mention, especially him quoting (while twirling, of course) Kang and Kodos: "Forwards, not backwards! Upwards not downwards! And always twirling, twirli...

Joe Biden says he is ‘out of time’ to run for president in livestream
Yahoo News - over 2 years
Earlier today, Vice President Joe Biden, 72, live streamed his announcement that he will not run for the Democratic nomination in the race for President of the United States in the 2016 elections. Speaking on the Rose Garden outside of the White House with his wife Jill Biden and President Barack Obama on his sides, Vice President Biden stated the “window” of time to mount a presidential race campaign had closed. Vice President Biden did admit the decision was not due to his family and their mourning of Joe Biden’s son, Beau Biden, whom passed away from brain cancer in late May. “I’ve said many times my family has suffered a loss and I hope it comes a time, sooner, rather than later, when you think of your loved ones it brings a smile to your lips and not a tear to your eyes. I am proud to say, the Biden family have reached that point.” Related:  Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others pledge support for student arrested over homemade clock While Biden’s speech was to decline enteri...

'Draft Biden' Super PAC Cancels Plans To Air First Ad
Huffington Post - over 2 years
A super PAC encouraging Vice President Joe Biden to run for president announced on Thursday that it would not buy television airtime for its first ad in accordance with Biden's reported wishes. The super PAC, Draft Biden, released a 90-second video ad online Wednesday that overlays audio of Biden speaking about coping with the death of his first wife and infant daughter, who died in a 1972 car accident, with photos of Biden and his family members. The group said at the time that it would be making a 6-figure ad buy in cable markets across the country. A person close to the vice president told The Los Angeles Times on Thursday that while Biden valued the group's efforts, "he has seen the ad and thinks the ad treads on sacred ground and hopes they don't run it." "Nobody has more respect for the Vice President and his family than we do. Obviously we will honor his wishes," Josh Alcorn, senior adviser to Draft Biden, said in a statement. The vice president's office declined ...
